  • Mobile Gaming's Only Going to Get Bigger, and Grow Faster Than Console Gaming, According to Report

    4 May 2015, 1:18 pm by: Carter Dotson

    Digi-Capital sees a bright future for mobile games in the next few years. The firm predicts that mobile gaming revenue will hit $29 billion this year, increase to $45 billion by 2018, as gaming software reaches $88 billion this year, and $110 billion in 2018.…
  • 'Subterfuge' Strategy/Diplomacy Game Preview - Fascinating Machinations of Machines

    4 May 2015, 12:20 pm by: Tasos Lazarides

    One of my favorite aspect of strategy games is the clash of wits and the constant attempt to outmaneuver your opponent. Yet, AI opponents never really give me those glorious moments that a strategy board game can, the knowledge that you've just outmaneuvered…
  • Update Mondays: 'Clash Of Clans', 'WWE Immortals', '.Decluster', 'Mr Jump', And More

    4 May 2015, 10:49 am by: Shaun Musgrave

    Hello everyone, and welcome to the week! It's time once again for our look back at the noteworthy updates of the last seven days. Some really awesome updates this last week, even though several of them were just fixing great games that had been broken for a…
  • The TouchArcade Show - 203 - A Certain Je Ne Sais Quoi

    1 May 2015, 9:00 pm by: Eli Hodapp

    This is a pretty awesome podcast episode, we start with troubleshooting Jared's weird inability to figure out Reddit, move on to shout outs, and then discuss some great games of the week including The Line Zen [Free], the subsequent Ketchapp drama. We also…
  • TouchArcade Game of the Week: 'Marvel Future Fight'

    1 May 2015, 8:30 pm by: Jared Nelson

    The idea behind the TouchArcade Game of the Week is that every Friday afternoon we post the one game that came out this week that we think is worth giving a special nod to. Now, before anyone goes over-thinking this, it doesn't necessarily mean our Game of the…
  • Best iPhone and iPad Games - 5/1/15 - 'Does Not Commute', 'Hearthstone's Blackrock Mountain…

    1 May 2015, 8:12 pm by: Eli Hodapp

    Another great week for iOS gamers is now officially in the books. Our top rated reviews this week cover an incredible free to play game, the awesome conclusion of the Hearthstone expansion, a Metroidvania game... and an amazing port of a classic RPG. Weak…
  • 'Hearthstone' Blackrock Mountain Adventure Review - The Best Way to Experience this Fantastic CCG

    1 May 2015, 7:30 pm by: Tasos Lazarides

    After five weeks of playing, thinking, and writing about Hearthstone's [Free] Blackrock Mountain Adventure (BRM), the fun is over and we are back to playing plain, old Hearthstone. No more Wings to explore, no more crazy bosses to tackle, and, more…
  • Latest 'Divide By Sheep' Trailer Showcases the Power of Friendship and Slicing Sheep into Pieces

    1 May 2015, 7:00 pm by: Jared Nelson

    Back at PAX South in January, we went hands-on with tinyBuild's Divide By Sheep, a sheep-based puzzler that had you splitting and sorting groups of sheep onto different floating rafts. And by splitting I mean literally splitting those poor little sheepies in…
  • 'MicRogue' Review - A Fast-Paced, Chess-y, Roguelike

    1 May 2015, 6:16 pm by: Carter Dotson

    I'm generally terrible at roguelikes. What can I say, I'm young and reckless! But I love the genre (and its conventions that inspire other games) because they're highly replayable and demand that I get better at them. When Steam had its recent roguelike sale,…
  • 'Burn It Down' Review - Relationship Platforming

    1 May 2015, 5:00 pm by: Chris Carter

    Minimalist platformer games have become one of my favorite unlikely genres on mobile devices. Years ago I would have scoffed the idea of running and jumping with precision on a touch-specific control scheme, but at this point, we have MFi controllers and a…
  • 'Choice Of The Petal Throne' Review - A Thorny Throne

    1 May 2015, 4:00 pm by: Shaun Musgrave

    As a longtime fan of gamebooks and interactive fiction in general, I've enjoyed seeing the genre blossom on iOS, especially within the last few years. What's especially great about it is that it hasn't simply been the work of any one developer. The genre is…
  • Star Wars Rebels Table Comes to 'Zen Pinball' and 'Star Wars Pinball'

    1 May 2015, 3:00 pm by: Jared Nelson

    Just last week Zen Studios added a brand new Age of Ultron table to both Marvel Pinball and Zen Pinball in celebration of the new Avengers movie opening today, but already the probably-sleep-deprived studio is back with another brand new table, this time based…
  • 'The Paris Dossier' Review - Spying in WW2 Paris

    1 May 2015, 2:00 pm by: Tasos Lazarides

    When most think of WW2, they think of grainy black-and-white footage of exploding planes and of exhausted soldiers running to their death. That this is the dominant imagery of WW2 is not surprising, of course, since most of us are drawn to the visual spectacle…
  • 'Threes' Creator Asher Vollmer's New Game 'Royals' Available Now on PC

    1 May 2015, 1:00 pm by: Carter Dotson

    Those of you looking to play the next game from Threes [$1.99] creator Asher Vollmer finally have your chance, though not on mobile. While his game Close Castles is on hold (and not necessarily planned as a mobile game), you can play Royals right now. This is…
  • 'Ys Chronicles 1' Review - How Much Is That Dogi In The Window?

    1 May 2015, 12:00 pm by: Shaun Musgrave

    In my personal experience, I'm not sure if there's ever been as strong a case of sounding awful on paper but being outstanding in practice as Falcom's action-RPG Ys: Ancient Ys Vanished. I'm actually something of a latecomer to the series, though it was always…
  • ‘Star Wars Card Trader’ Offers Plenty of CC with None of the G

    1 May 2015, 11:01 am by: Eric Ford

    Purely leveraging a major brand, Star Wars Card Trader is all about collecting cards and nothing else.
  • 'Hearthstone' Blackrock Mountain Adventure - Guide and Tips for Normal and Heroic Hidden Laboratory…

    1 May 2015, 10:20 am by: Tasos Lazarides

    So this is how it ends, not with a bang, but with Nefarian. Hearthstone's [Free] Blackrock Mountain Adventure has reached its end with the last wing, The Hidden Laboratory, and now we'll have to wait until the next expansion to get an influx of new cards. This…

    Hello, gentle readers, and welcome to the RPG Reload, the weekly feature where no losses are accepted when we can just reload. Each week, we take a look at an RPG from the App Store's past. It's a chance to revisit an old favorite, reflect on how well it holds…
  • Bad Timing Award: 'EA Sports UFC' and its Jon 'Bones' Jones Cover

    30 April 2015, 8:00 pm by: Tasos Lazarides

    Apparently, Madden NFL is not the only game franchise that has a curse associated with its cover, as the EA Sports UFC [Free] mobile game has just one-upped it big time. For those who don't play Madden NFL, there's a so-called "Madden Curse" that states that…
  • 'Pako - Car Chase Simulator' Now Lets You Flee the Cops on a Zamboni

    30 April 2015, 7:30 pm by: Carter Dotson

    Pako - Car Chase Simulator [$0.99] has just gotten several new levels in its second big content update. You can now flee from the police in three new maps: the beach, a hockey rink, and wintertime Finland. The Finland level has the fake news brief in Finnish,…
